haha i monopolized them in my school library from like 4th to 7th grade. The Legend of Luke or Salamandastron were my favorites I think. they really solidified my love for reading and books. lovelovelove them. they mean so much to me.

after that i moved on to other fantasy like lotr and The Legend of Drizz't (I know at least one person on this site has read those books)

yeah, I love it, it's so awesome that it even exists and I can be a part of it

I love Jazz and def would like to see you perform, do you have any videos posted ?
Brandon's cousin Johhny (JPBLues) was voted one of the top 100 jazz guitarists to watch like 2 years ago.

Do like Jazz, so that's pretty cool.
Is performing your career path ?

right? so good, I love those two books as well. It's been over 10 years since I've read one but I might be visiting the library soon so I can get some haha. I remember the books being very detailed and very graphic.

I actually don't have any videos...I should put some up haha. And that's awesome.

And nah, I'm not planning on going into performing. I love it, but I don't think I'd want to do it for a living...too unreliable, and honestly i feel like having to do it to support myself would put too much pressure on me and take the fun out of it. I plan on continuing to do it as a hobby though.

i LOVE drizz't. like i read those books so many times if i pick up the books i know what the next sentence will be. like, it's cheesy as fuck, but drizz't as a character really influenced me as a person haha. there's so much of it to read tho, it's hard to tell you to start a 20+ book series.

i've never read wheel of time. i've read the shannara series, the horus heresy series/warhammer 40k novels, a ton of other forgotten realm novels (which is the universe of drizz't), pendragon series, eragon, and probably some other young adult fantasy shit lol. it was all i read for a looooong time

i wish i had started reading "classics" earlier. like i've never read the catcher in the rye, somehow. i'm reading the old man and the sea right now and it's the first Hemingway i've ever read.
